    Whether it's OK to quote Wikipedia depends on the context. I would flunk this in my writing classes because (1) you need to attribute quotations to who said them, even if it's an anonymous encyclopedia; and (2) because an essay or diary consisting of long chunks from someone else's work and a bare minimum of your own writing or ideas isn't really an essay.

    Try again, when you have something clear to say -- but try to get more of yourself in there and less of some anonymous writer(s).

      It's all out there to see.  And we all know or should know what each "holiday" stands for.

      But thanks for your advice, anyway ;)
